We Can’t Believe How Big These Kids of Celebs Have Gotten!

You know you’re getting older when you see some your kids’ friends on Facebook and social media celebrating a birthday and you think, “my where has the time gone?” or “boy have those kids gotten big!

I think the same can be said of a few of the celeb parents we’ve followed when they first had children compared to now.

There’s Chris Tucker and his son Destin is 19 and is a spitting image of his famous comedian dad.

Demi Moore and her three daughters are are now 23 (Tallulah), 25 (Scout) and 28 (Rumer)! wow!

Kobi Bryant’s daughters are 14 (Natalia), 11, (Gianna) and 8 months (baby Bianka), seen with mom Vanessa.

Madonna‘s son David is and daughter Mercy are both now 11-years old.

Mel B stepped out with her daughters 10-year old Angel and 5-year old Madison earlier in the Spring and I didn’t realize they had grown so much.

Russell Simmons‘ daughters, almost 15-year old Aoki and 17-year old Ming stepped out at a charity event looking so adult as they did with their mom and half brothers 8-year old Kenzo (with Djimon Honsou) and 2-year old Wolfe Lee (with hubby Tim Leissner)

Kelly Ripa has a 19-year old!! Her son Michaeal and also a 15-year-old daughter Lola, and 13-year-old son Joaquin with hubby Mark Consuelos.

Nia Long  took her 16-year old son  Massai Zhivago Dorsey II on a humanitarian trip to Africa. Look how much taller he is than she is!

Reese Witherspoon’s kids with Ryan Phillipe , Ava are 14 and 17 -year old, respectively.

Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith’s son Trey (with Will’s ex Sheree Zampani) is 24!

Down to the younger ones who have grown up is Tia Mowry whose son Cree is now 6.

Finally, Jennifer Hudson’s son David Otunga, Jr. is almost 8-years old. His birthday is today! Happy Birthday, David Jr!

Serena Williams’ Iconic Anne Leibovitz Demi Moore Do-Over. Meh.

img_7848

I’m not jealous that the same media conglomerate that owns Reddit, (Conde Naste) owns Vanity Fair and the latter got an exclusive feature on Serena Williams and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian‘s love story.

I’m not annoyed that the author, Buzz Bissinger, goes a little bit overboard to ram it down our throats that the article is a “love story.” I think he mentioned the phrase “love story” like 50 times!

I’m not peeved that the wonderfully talented and famed photographer Anne Lebowitz was bestowed the honor of doing Williams’ maternity shoot even as we were pumping up our pick in another post.

I am not even fermuxed that the author tried to pump up Columbia, Maryland, where Alexis was raised as some famous planned community when as a native Marylander, I know it’s not that big a deal but hey, we gotta hype him up too.

I am not miffed that the magazine chose to have her do yet another take of Demi Moore’s iconic cover because, by this point, it has been overdone to the point that it is a cliche and I think Serena deserves more, more authenticity and more uniqueness and something more fitting.

ok. I lied. Maybe I am all those things. Jealous. Annoyed. Peeved. Fermuxed. Miffed.

Well, you don’t have to let my grudge stop you from heading over to Vanity Fair and checking out.

You will learn that the Tennis champ took a pregnancy test to prove a friend wrong and that her vomiting, fatigue and swollen breast meant nothing. Nothing at all.

You’ll discover that Williams took several more after and eventually, presented them all in a brown bag to Ohanian a day before the start of the Australian Open (which she won) and you’ll see Ohanian described as a science geek, an Ivy League Law school dropout, who didn’t watch one tennis match before dating Williams.

You’ll get the context of my fave part:

The day of his birthday, April 24, Alexis went to the Carousel Restaurant in Little Armenia in Los Angeles with his grandparents. Serena and he FaceTimed. She was calling to say happy birthday, which might not sound like a big deal but was because she is a Jehovah’s Witness and part of the religion is not to celebrate birthdays. She was doing something she normally would not do, reaching beyond, telling him on the phone how wonderful their lives together had been.

Alexis knew then he wanted to marry her, not simply out of happiness or compatibility. She was helping him become the best version of himself because of her own work ethic and focus, with millions watching and the expectation of the public that she should win every time, what Serena herself described as carrying “three pyramids” on her shoulder. He thought he worked hard—it is part of the romance of high tech that everyone works 18 hours a day and then curls up under the desk for a few hours’ sleep with their laptop as teddy bear and pacifier—but he realized it was nothing compared with Serena.

“I felt like a door had been opened to a person who made me want to be my best self. . . . I find myself just wanting to be better by simply being around her because of the standard she holds.”

If you’re a fan of Williams or unlikely pairings or love stories, you might very well enjoy the treatment and I think for sure, you will love all the great tales and stories within.

I do appreciate all the insights from the piece even if I got issues on a bunch of other aspects of it.

It is a great read and I highly recommend it!

Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair Cover predicted to be as Transformative as Demi Moore’s

transformative

A sociology professor compares recent much-talked about Caitlyn Jenner Vanity Fair cover to the 1991 Demi Moore nude pregnancy cover in the same magazine, both shot by famed photographer Anne Leibovitz.

In the academic journal The Conversation, politics & sociology professor Renee Cramer says both covers are transformatative to cultural awareness and perception of once purposefully underexposed states of the human form.

They are cultural “tipping points,” Cramer proclaims.

In sum, she  hypothesizes that Jenner’s cover will push the boundaries of public acceptance of transgender people the same way Moore’s cover led to societal welcoming of the pregnant body out of the shadow of shame it was tucked away in before.

It is an interesting theory. Read her piece republished in New Republic here.

How Having a Baby Can Revive your Career in Hollywood

In 2011, Mommyish’s did a post about so-called “DList” celebrities who got more famous after having a baby. Actually, it reminded me of a piece we did earlier, in January that year that writer and TV personality Teresa Strasser wrote for us, “Top Celebrity Baby Exploiters of 2010“.

In that piece, Strasser  exalted about how pregnancy can easily launch a reality TV cast member into the public spotlight and on the cover of the top gossip mags. 

That was also the year for the 20th anniversary of Demi Moore’s iconic Vanity Fair cover which we’ve determined was also the start of the public’s infectious interest in celebrity pregnancies.
And it’s gone even more mainstream in recent years.
While watching back episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians (again late as usual), I noted Kim Kardashian stating that since she got pregnant, the paparazzi were even more ferocious and viral in search of pics.  So true, as we’ve blogged before here, Kim, Kate Middleton, Victoria Beckham, Snooki and Beyonce‘s respective pregnancies garnered the most stories written by traditional media and other outlets that do not usually cover celebrity parents and pregnancy. 
In year’s past, we’d say such media organizations and writers may have even looked down on gossip blogs and mags that “bumpwatched.”
Not anymore. They’re right here in the pepper pot with the US Weekly, In Touch Weekly, OK!, People, PopSugar, E!Online, CelebLaundry, Perez Hilton  and BellyitchBlog‘s of the world!
Yes, the Celebrity Bumpwatch Phenomenon is alive and thriving.
 Indeed!

Brit singer Rochelle Humes turned down Demi Moore nude cover recreation

Our Bellytich Bumpwatch alum Rochelle Humes from the British group The Saturdays  revealed in a recent interview that she turned down many offers to recreate the iconic 1991  Demi Moore Vanity Fair cover.
When pregnant with her daughter, Alaia-Mai, in 2013, the star of the short lived E! Reality TV show Chasing the Saturdays told Notebook magazine that she spent the last couple of months leading up to her daughter’s birth rejecting numerous offers.
“I got asked to do all those (naked) shoots with the bump and I just thought it sounded like hell. No, no and no,” she told the magazine.  “Marvin was lucky if he saw me with my bump. I wanted to feel like Demi Moore looked, but I was just sweaty, spotty and yuck.”
Several celebrities in the US, UK and elsewhere have posed nude while pregnant for magazines.So there you have it, not all celebrities are eager to bare it all for the celebration of the pregnant body for the world to see. (ha!)

Report: Mila Kunis and Asthton Kutcher are expecting their first child

Less than 6 months after his divorce from ex Demi Moore was finalized and a month after his engagement to co-That 70s Show alum Mila Kunis, actor Ashton Kutcher is reportedly expecting his first child with Kunis.
Apparently the news was unplanned, sources tell OK!  magazine. The couple has dated for two years and Kunis was reportedly seen attending a pre-natal yoga class in Hollywood, California, E!Online  reports.
“It was a total shock for both of them, but they feel up for the challenge,” the friend told OK “It didn’t seem like it was possible for them to fall any deeper in love, but the prospect of raising an insta-family together has solidified their commitment to each other.”
Interesting too is that Kunis was recently named as a spokesperson for Jim Bean liquor.  We’ll assume it will be apple juice in the glass in the campaign.
